I Am A Banana (original score)
Sunshine Yang is the director. I am the original composer. I Am A Banana tells the stories of how two Asian-Americans who moved from Asia to America at young ages deal with the cultural differences that come about.  
Westworld S3E5, "Genre,"
Car Chase Scene (Rescore)
I rescored this scene as a part of the 2020 Spitfire Westworld Competition. Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan are the directors, and Ramin Djawadi is the original composer. Westworld is a futuristic HBO show about host robots from a world created by humans for humans to escape the monotony of every day life in a spaghetti Western environment who develop human-like emotions, dreams, and aspirations, which collide with the realization that they are not human but hosts in this escapist world.
Danny and the Wild Bunch
I rescored this film as a part of the 8th Annual Zurich Film Festival. Robert Rugan is the writer and director, and Brooks Ball is the original composer. Danny and the Wild Bunch is a live action film combined with animated characters about a children's book author who, in an attempt to appeal to a wider audience, makes the story she's currently working on darker. That proves to be a poor choice on her end.
This is the music from my rescore of the main title scene in the comedy-drama film "Man About Town." Ben Affleck plays a Hollywood talent agent who starts taking a self-help course, because his wife cheats on him. For the course, he must keep a diary, which falls into the hands of a journalist who threatens to bring him down. Mike Binder is the director, and Larry Groupé is the original composer. At the 2017 Palomar Film Music Workshop, cofounded by Larry and Roger Neill, and featuring guest faculty Garry Schyman, George S. Clinton, and numerous others, I scored this scene. My score was recorded at Studio West, with Jason LaRocca as the audio engineer. This workshop was an incredible experience that will stay with me forever.

This is the music from my rescore for the short animated film "The Oceanmaker." After a worldwide drought, a determined pilot fights sky pirates as a last hope to secure the final cloud, and with it, the final water source on the planet. Lucas Martell is the director, and Chris Reyman is the original composer. I scored it as a part of the 2017 Marvin Hamlisch Film Scoring Contest.
